Portfolio and Investment Activity

During the three months ended December 31, 2012, we invested $78.6 million across two new and several existing portfolio companies. This compares to investing $141.0 million across three new and several existing portfolio companies for the three months ended December 31, 2011. Sales, repayments and other exits of investment principal totaled $111.3 million during the three months ended December 31, 2012, versus $86.1 million during the three months ended December 31, 2011. The two new originations during the quarter were as follows:

  • During November 2012, we purchased $20.0 million of the senior secured notes of American Piping Products, Inc., a distributor of specialized heavy-wall seamless steel pipe, fittings and related products and services.
  • During December 2012, we purchased $21.0 million of the senior subordinated notes of Higginbotham Insurance Agency, Inc., a generalist insurance broker which places property and casualty and life insurance, and provides risk management services. We also purchased 1,163 units of Higginbotham Investment Holdings, LLC for $1.5 million, representing a less than 1% ownership of the company.

In conjunction with the two investments this quarter, we recorded fees and discounts of $0.8 million. Additionally, each debt investment bears a fixed rate of interest, and all-in, our expected yield to maturity for these securities is 13.4% and 11.5%, respectively.
